My advice, not that you asked for it. You will need a college degree. I really believe almost anyone will do. Journalism was great for me. I had to write every week, got to meet amazing people and helped tell their stories. After you have your degree, jump in, both feet. I might suggest you find a topic that interest you more than a specific job. I love being a medical editor, maybe you love exploring space, crafts, or something else. Try and find a position in these areas. Then look around and see what you might love doing. You might end up doing something you never dreamed you would. In my world there are copyeditors, managing editors, developmental editors, production editors, and I am an acquiring editor. In other worlds there are video editors, audio editors, and many more. They are all awesome jobs for the right person.
While my job title is not an Editor it is part of my job description and the role I play within the company. I actually did not go to school to become an Editor. My Bachelors and Masters degrees are in Special Education administration, I taught in the classroom for 9 years and then began working for an educational company and then moved over to another educational learning company. My first role with these companies was in the Services field where I predominantly taught teachers how to teach math and worked with school district leaders to transform math education. Yet the past year I have been working in the Product Development field where I review manuscripts of content that we will be pushing to publish in print as well as in digital format.
I agree with Tim, that it truly is about the experiences you will have. Whatever degree you pursue, continue to collect those experiences and build out your resume with them. You never know which experiences will land you your next position.
